I have the free Fender app, I think you can pay and get more options. I don't know what else it can do besides tune stuff
It goes to DADGAD, it's the lowest or Drop A
for the phone

    If you can you're better off with a headstock tuner. They're cheap, pretty easy to use, and are pretty accurate. But if you're just looking for an app, I've had good luck with the Guitar Tuna app. Drop C was the lowest I used with it before I bought a headstock tuner though. It would occasionally have a hard time picking up the low C unless I set my phone pretty close to my guitar. I believe the free one only shows E Stnd but if you pay for the full app you can set the tuning you want and it'll give you the notes you need to tune to as well as recognizing fairly well which string you're playing. It also has some chord charts that can be interesting to go through.

    My advice is to get either a pedal or chromatic clip-on tuner. Simply because they will be more accurate because there won't be any outside noise picked up by the microphone.

    Clip-on tuners also take the vibration of the wood into account and pedal tuners really just do it by the signal you send through it.

    In the past I was always massively skeptical of headstock tuners. Now I put a D'Addario micro on everything. I have a good tuner pedal, but it doesn't get used anymore.
